Who can become a Botox practitioner UK?

At Cosmetic Courses, only train doctors, dentists and nurses are able to attend our Botox courses. Although, there is not yet legislations in the UK to prevent non-medical professionals from providing Botox treatments, the general consensus in the aesthetic medical industry, and the entire medical sector, is that injectable treatments, such as Botox, should only be performed by qualified and experienced medical professional. This includes anyone who has a university degree in nursing, dentistry or medicine and a valid registration with the NMC, GDC, GMC, or equivalent for oversees medical practitioners. It is also extremely likely that regulations to prevent medical professionals, such as aesthetic therapists, from performing injectables will be introduced in the near future. It is also important to bear in mind that Botulinum Toxin A (Botox) is a prescription only medicine (POM). This means that by law, the person the Botox must have completed their independent prescribing course, such as doctors, nurse prescribers or dentists.
